Soap & Glory 'One Heck Of A Blot' Review

Soap & Glory 'One Heck Of A Blot' Review

My Target has a Soap & Glory section, and I was so excited to try this famous powder. 

Check out my review below for the pros and cons of this make up product <3


Not super long lasting. 

For any sort of translucent powder, I never look for 24 hour longevity, but I expect at least 5-6 hours (I have very oily skin, hence the lowered expectation). 

This powder gave me at most 1-2 hours before I felt disgusting and shiny. That, for me, was the number 1 red flag of this product. 

There's a white cast. 

The first few times I wore this, I never really noticed this. But when I stopped wearing this for a bit and switched to my Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder, I immediately realized the difference. 

This powder isn't really translucent unfortunately. There is a hint of white, and for someone like me who is quite tan, the effect is REALLY obvious. 

Quite powdery. 

While my Too Faced Powder is powdery, this one is almost excessively so. I've never been a big fan of powdery products to begin with but I've learned to accept it. Still, even this was too much for me to handle. 

Feels very soft. 

This product isn't necessarily bad, so I don't want to end this review on a bad note. Despite those flaws for me (PERSONALLY), I'm sure this product will work on those with non-oily skin and is paler than me. 

Still, the quality of this powder is very fine and very soft. It almost feels like a high end product. 

I had really wanted to like this product, mostly because some of my UK beauty YouTubers swear by this product...but unfortunately, this was not worth it for me. 

What's your favorite pressed powder?
